Because payment information is securely saved in a digital wallet, shoppers don't have to navigate through traditional checkout flows and repeatedly enter the same payment and shipping address information. The wallet can provide a faster and more consistent experience across websites, which saves shoppers time and effort by allowing them to securely share saved payment information.
